    About this book

WHY DON T THE CHINESE SAY I LOVE YOU ?
HOW DO THEY GET BY WITHOUT MAPS?
CAN IT EVER BE RUDE TO BE POLITE?

In this intelligent, sympathetic book, Deborah Fallows opens up a window onto Chinese life through its notoriously difficult language. She shows how even small advancements, such as mastering a single word or phrase, can unlock grammatical and cultural secrets.

Whether it s learning not to say please , or understanding why the Chinese hate the number 4, Fallows uses stories from three years of living and working in China, to offer unique insights into the country s customs and culture.

This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in China, be they first-time tourists, seasoned business people, or just the idly curious. It will help you to think like the Chinese think.
